Birdseye view of London

06 Oct

One of my favorite moments in cinematic history has to be the moment in “Mary Poppins” where, after Mary, Bert, Jane, and Michael get all sooted up after flying up the chimney and go gallivanting on the rooftops of London, after the chimney-smoke staircase, they get to the tallest chimney and look out over the city. The music goes from a variation based on that famous clock chime melody and transitions into an orchestral recapitulation of “Feed the Birds”, while the sun sets over the city and the night lights start glimmering in the buildings below.

But…that is not the scene I’m doing for this paper.
